I joined 6M Geriatrics Team as our mission to care for patients in a continuum in the various phases in one’s life was very important to me. The fragmentation of medical care, i.e. being cared for by so many doctors in all different settings or even in the same clinic did not make sense. Building relationship with my patients and families, providing a piece of mind that I will be there for you each step of your medical care in all healthcare settings is the WHY I joined 6M Geriatrics. And delivering the service that really matters to our patients and families is what matters to me as a physician.
In my spare time, I volunteer for my 2 daughters’ PTSA Cultural Fair, Girl Scouts, and Korean-American School. We enjoy adventure travels to places like Patagonia. This year, we have found great local hikes like Mailbox Peak and Snow Lake.
